Memorial Day is one of my favorite times of year! In my mind, it’s the official kick-off to Summer and grilling season. It’s filled with way too much food, hanging outside, maybe a sunburn, a few drinks, and so much fun! What’s better than that? 🙂
Since Memorial Day is only a week away, I thought I’d gather up The Best Memorial Day Recipes from my blog and other food blogs around the web!
Snacks, Side Dishes, and Appetizers:
With all the hot dogs, burgers, and margaritas I plan on consuming, I thought we could all use something fresh and healthy! Add in some blueberries and you’ve got yourself a Red, White, and Blue salad!
It’s red, it’s vegan, and it can be gluten free! It keeps with the Red, White, and Blue theme and is perfect for your friends with dietary restrictions!
Because I can’t have a burger without a hefty scoop of baked beans on the side!
